Casillas and Ancelotti clear the air

Iker Casillas and Carlo Ancelotti have cleared the air over comments made by the daughter of the Real Madrid Coach.

Katia Ancelotti told Vanity Fair that in her opinion, too much time is spent talking about Casillas and not enough about Diego Lopez, his rival for the goalkeeper’s position at Santiago Bernabeu.

Lopez is the club’s first choice for League games with Casillas taking the gloves in the Cup, last night helping Madrid to the final in a 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid.

“Why does everyone care about Casillas and nobody care about Diego?” Katia Ancelotti asked Vanity Fair.

“I don’t understand – he’s a terrific player.”

Mundo Deportivo reports that Ancelotti apologised to Casillas for his daughter’s comments, with Casillas saying he doesn’t know Katia but accepted the Coach’s apology because it is the right thing to do.
